    I don’t think we would have used anything in that box. Maybe the lip balm?

    Now I’m curious to see what the winner of your giveaway receives. A jar of cinnamon?

    Thanks for your honest review!

    Thank you for the review – I always find it interesting to see what products are out there and having not gone to many diabetes conferences, most of these products were new to me. Worth $35 however? Not for me,but I’m sure others would pay!

    Mike, maybe part of the problem is that there’s not enough innovative diabetes products out there. Sugar-free stuff generally is not worth eating – too many carbs and the fun after effects of sorbitol, maltitol, etc.

    Here’s a thought, what innovative things would you like to see? I’d go for a skin hydrating cream that didn’t interfere with blood glucose finger stick results.

    DMProducts. Maybe next month’s box will be more exciting. At least you got lip balm, syrup and seaweed. The latter might be good in a salad.

    DMProducts. Sounds interesting but I would not use 99% of what you received. Hopefully by the company getting feedback the contents will improve. At $35 though I not sure I would spend my money on it but would like to see what another box would contain.

    I guess diabetics are the next group of people to be used and abused by companies. Thanks for the honest review.

    DMProducts. None of those products really seemed diabetic specific. Kind of a dissapointment

    I won’t even say the promotion’s name because even for free, I wouldn’t want anything in that box. It would go straight to the garbage.

    DMProducts Why not? I’m always up for freebies for the hubby to have. I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t eat seaweed anything, but hopefully the new box will be better.

    DMP Products: I’m glad I didn’t jump through the hoop & sign up.
    I was curious when I first read about this D-box idea and almost signed up for it until I came to the $35 cost. And now seeing the contents of this one box I’m glad I resisted. Since I live in Chicago I can usually find products in my area if I do a little looking.

    “DMProducts” my name is Howard Stillman I am excited to be entering this contest. Your story enlightened me I would like to know where I could go to get this box every month.I am a type 2 diabetic with out of control numbers. I was on the insulin pump and I got a major infection from the cannula. Wish there was some type of device that would help me. Any suggestions Howie

    I’m definitely curious to see what would be in the next box. Samples of glucose tabs are always useful in our house with 3 type 1s!

    I agree with you about the product and the the “no” special price for the D-box. Just wanted you to know. Not interested in the contest.

    I also would have been disappointed with the contents. When I did try seaweed I didn’t care for it. Thanks for reviewing this DMProducts.

    I would’ve used all of those products, but they don’t seem all that diabetes-relevant. I’d love to see what they do in the future, though! DMProducts

    So that looks to me like junk from vendors that they had trouble giving away for free. This company has a lot of nerve to charge $35 for a handful of free samples.
